Your Connecting Advantage: Success Tactics to Turn Life into One Big Connecting Opportunity

Feeling stuck in an outdated maze of networking? Are stacks of all the business cards that you’ve been collecting at countless networking events threatening to tumble off your desk? How many networking events have you been to without any real connections to show for it? Your social-media platforms of choice give you endless streams of information, but so much of it is seemingly fruitless.

You don’t need more of the same. You need an ADVANTAGE. A Connecting Advantage.

This travel-size book gives you chapter after chapter of refreshing new views on how not to network. Instead, I help you identify the strategies, techniques, and tips that you need if you’re going to be connected and connecting. You’ll find out about:

  • The keys to your personal brand—including how to separate yourself from the pack
  • Strategies for finding networking nirvana
  • When, why, and how to break up a business relationship—without damaging your reputation
  • Intentionally creating serendipity and always be at the right place at the right time
  • Expert #connectinghacks that make your life easier
  • Numerous resources from experts such as Daniel Pink, Dorie Clark, Bob Burg, William Arruda, Jayson Gaignard, and Adam Grant.

Your Connecting Advantage is your secret weapon to building the business relationships you crave.
